Help with Intel HD630 and Nvidia GT710

Hi all,

I'm new to hackintosh, working hard to get installed Catalina on my HP Desktop using OpenCore for a week. I've followed each and every steps on Dortania. But, some thing went wrong. But, I never gave up. Kept reading articles, post, comments Etc. Finally, I installed it some how! But, after successful installation it wont boot! After verbose texts takes longer on apple logo with cursor and progressbar. I already have another SSD with windows installed!

My PC configuration:

HP 290 MT G1

Intel Core i5-7500 3.40GHz

Vengeance 16GB DDR4

WD Green 240 GB 2.5 inch SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (WDS240G2G0A)

Intel HD 630 + Gigabyte GeForce GT 710 2GB

Intel H110 Chipset


What I've tried:

After a lot of research I could understand that it's a graphics related problem. GT710 has native support in Catalina, so, I've tried to disable igpu by deleting its root in Device properties in config.plist.


My efi:



Any help would be appreciated!!!

Thanks in advance!

You cannot disable any iGPU per sé. Only manufacturers can do that through their own BIOS settings and that's usually restricted to laptops. Removing properties injection from your OC config sure is a way to bypass the iGPU and driver will attach to it..


There's a typo in your NVRAM boot args: - igfxvesa instead of -igfxvesa. You'll find you probably need to use the SMBIOS of a desktop Mac with Kepler graphics if you want your GT710 to be supported. If required, use the -no_compat-check boot arg.

Herve, Thanks for the tip!

Acutally I'm trying in my Desktop and there is no gpu related (Many options are hidden in HP BIOS) options in BIOS. I found iMac14,2 has kepler graphics. But, its 4th gen chip. Really confused to choose a right SMBIOS. Could you please suggest one for my specification?!



Tried with iMac14,2 but still got stuck on Apple logo
